Golden raisins and green raisins are two different types of raisins that vary in their color, taste, and production methods. differences between the two:

They are typically treated with sulfur dioxide to preserve their color and prevent darkening during the drying process. Green raisins, on the other hand, have a green or light yellow color and are usually made from grapes that are dried naturally without any sulfur dioxide treatment.
Grape Variety: Golden raisins are primarily made from seedless white grapes, such as Thompson Seedless or Sultana grapes. Green raisins are usually made from a variety of grapes called Corinth or Zante currants, which are small and seedless.
